This is the Perfect Time to Reacquaint Yourself with Wes Anderson

Why does Fall make us so damn sad? Simple: nostalgia. And no one does it better than Wes Anderson.

The most successful filmmakers have the ability to transport their audience into a world of their creation. As an audience, we’ve grown to expect being fully immersed in certain universes when we sit down in the theater for certain films. For instance, a Tarantino film without blood fountains or a J.J. Abrams film sans explosion would leave us all unfulfilled.

As is true with some of his contemporaries, Anderson too creates a signature universe through his films. Anderson’s world is riddled in the old-world charm that, at least in our opinion, is synonymous with a more melancholic mood perfectly suited for Fall (or Autumn, depending on where you’re from).  His color palletes, wardrobe choices, soundtracks (The Darjeeling Limited has the best soundtrack of them all and is currently streaming on Sling), and that unmistakable Anderson-esque sense of nostalgia makes us wish we could be in a Vermont chalet from yesteryear watching The Royal Tenenbaums or Hotel Chevalier.

If, like us, you can’t get enough of Anderson’s alternate universe and exotic locales, check out the Instagram account @WesAndersonPlanet which chronicles this aesthetic in real life.

Caution: Fall feels below.

#wesandersonplanet 📷 @threeedil . 📍 Hotel Piast . 🌍 Wroclaw, Poland . 📃 The Hotel Piast was built in 1908 according to the design of Waldemar Mildbradt in the classical style as the Hotel Kronprinz. A characteristic element of the hotel is a semicircular tower covered with a conical roof placed in the corner, housing a staircase illuminated by large windows, which towers over two five-story wings. On the ground floor on the street side, the rooms were intended for commercial activities. In the 1930s, a bank, hairdresser, florist and travel agency had their headquarters on the side of the former Ogrodowa Street. The next floors housed offices, club rooms, breakfast room, reading room and 56 guest rooms.  In the post-war period, Hotel Piast was bought and managed by a new group. The new owners completely renovated the façade of the hotel and restored decorative elements. All rooms were modernized and many other additions occurred. On February 18, 2015 Hotel Piast was re-opened to guests as a two-star hotel.

Side Note: Although Bottle Rocket doesn’t have the Wes Anderson style that we’ve come to know and gush over, it is a film worth seeing and is absolutely hilarious.
